The hotel is away from town, so we decided to eat at the restaurant. We didn't know anything about it or the award winning chef. We ate the prix fix and it was delicious. We only heard that Ireland had bad food, but this place is debunking that myth. As were most of the restaurants we went to in Ireland.

My husband and our 2 friends spent 10 days traveling through Southern Ireland, and I think the restaurant was the best of all we went to. It was a very relaxed atmosphere but at the same time very elegant. We all had something different, and each dish was very good.

We dined at the Munster Room in late May 2015 while staying at Waterford Castle. The dining room is elegant and welcoming. Our server Cathal was great, providing excellent service and helping us select the perfect items from the menu to create a very impressive dining experience. For a relatively small resort, the dining experience was world class.
